The three men who were apprehended after leading the Police in a high speed chase around Georgetown yesterday are expected to be placed in an Identification (ID) Parade to reveal if they are linked to any unsolved criminal cases.

This was confirmed by “A” Division Deputy Commander, Calvin Brutus. He could not confirm however, when the parade will be conducted.

Brutus also told Inews that so far, there has not been any reports to suggest that the car used by the three men was stolen.

Initially, the ranks observed a heavily tinted motor car with what they suspected was a fake number plate and approached same. However, upon realizing the police were closing in on them, the occupants of the motor car sped away and, in response, the police gave chase.
